GoldenMotor front to rear conversion- need parts

GoldenMotor front to rear conversion- need parts

I have a working GoldenMotors front hub motor that I use daily.

I am planning to build my own tadpole trike for winter use but I cannot afford to buy another motor to install in the rear wheel.

I would appreciate any info on buying just the cassette threaded plate and re-lacing a rear wheel and dishing it properly.

Any sources for just parts, used or otherwise, for Golden Motor motor housings would also be appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks, Karma

Damn that really sucks. I really want to keep riding through the winter but I can't afford to wipe out on a patch of ice and I can't afford a second motor. I was going to be hard enough to scrape together enough for the trike frame.

Any decent, inexpensive plans for a delta trike out there?
